XTerra~ABC Wednesday 122910


Well, we bought our new car yesterday and it is a Nissan XTerra! We drove to the dealer which stated they had a Nissan Titan (2010), the only one still left within 65 miles of our house. Turns out, it was mislabeled and was a 4x4 Frontier. I could tell that when the time came to decide, hubby really didn't want a truck. At our ages, do we really want to sit and ride in a truck on long trips? He had been in love with the XTerra ever since we rented one on a trip to Arizona one summer. It was very comfortable. And, we decided, we really don't need a 4x4 to go up and over rocks and boulders, but we DO need something with a high enough clearance to go on dirt roads. After our disappointment with the Titan/Frontier, hubby asked to see their one remaining 2010 XTerra, which was white, and they brought it out. He had a quote from his credit union and the dealership matched that, plus we got a $3,000 buyer incentive. So, hubby got to drive home HIS new car last night, and we'll be heading up to the Sierras this week to try out the new car. Today is our son's birthday and we'll spend the day with him and our grandson. Hubby is so eXcited!!! ABC Wednesday 122910

  2. Please tell your husband we are so honoured that he chose a new car to tie in with our ABC Wednesday! lol! We have a 4x4 Toyota Hilux and I must say how useful it is in the heavy snowfalls we have had here in North Yorkshire, UK. Hubby enjoys the challenge of 4x4 driving and I am quite happy to leave it to him as I am quite daunted by it all. Enjoy the day - can't beat family times can you?
    Thanks so much.

  6. I sure this is the only reason you bought the Xterra - you were running out of ideas for ABC Wednesday, lol.
    Hope it works out well for you regardless.
